Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Yesterday (May15th) we had a wonderful haiku by Yozakura, a not so well known classical haiku poet, so today I have chosen to challenge you with a haiku by a modern haiku poet and member of our Carpe Diem Haiku Kai family, Milan Rajkumar. Maybe you can remember this haiku as part of our first Carpe Diem Theme Week about the Tibetan Book of the Death.

cold barren garden
ah! I don't have to worry
coix seed beads in hand

Coix seed beads

Here is my (Chèvrefeuille) attempt:

cold barren garden
ah! I don't have to worry
coix seed beads in hand                              (Milan Rajkumar)

whispering voices praying 
the sound of coix seed beads                       (Chèvrefeuille)

                                                   - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
response:

cold barren garden
ah! I don't have to worry
coix seed beads in hand                              (Milan Rajkumar)

with narled knuckles she waits
for the answer to her prayers                         (janice)
